"The One Thing" as written by Michael Hutchence and Andrew Charles Farriss....
Well you know just what you do to me
The way you move soft and slippery
Cut the night just like a razor
Rarely talk and that's the danger

It's the one thing
You are my thing

You know your voice is a love song
It's a cat call from the past
There's no ice in your lovers walk
You don't look twice 'cause you move so fast

It's the one thing
You are my thing

You've got a dozen men behind you
You've got dead flowers on the floor
You're too pretty in the daylight
It keeps them coming back for more

It's the one thing
You are my thing

It's the one thing
You are my thing

It's the one thing
You are my thing

    General CommentNo responses yet??? This was a great song from one of the classic 80's bands. I remember first seeing this played on MTV when they actually played video's and was a fan since Michaeel Hutchens death.

    General CommentThe meaning is pretty clear I think.
    And yeah, this was such a good song, although the Shobooh Shobah album yielded up many excellent songs.

    Lyric CorrectionYou know what it does to me?
    It cuts the night like a razor
    It rarely talks and brings danger

    Why don't I look twice when it's so fast?
    In daylight it makes me pretty
    Back for more it keeps coming
